Being the first of its kind in the region we were super keen to get involved from the start. Taking place between the 7th and 10th June, the four day festival will be a celebration of the design industry, with three distinct areas including Graphic, Digital and Product.
An impressive line-up of speakers has been announced, they’ll be sharing their thoughts and findings across a range venues across the city and are sure to deliver some engaging content! Speakers include illustrators, typesetters, product designers and digital talents – true creative’s who are changing the design industry from the bottom up.

As a local branding and design agency, we feel it’s important to support such events and really shine a light on how creativity is important for everyone in some capacity. We do lots of works with schools and students to reinforce how creativity can support learning in all subjects.
A common challenge for Midlands creative agencies is that they lose business to London agencies based on simple geography, it is about time we started to shout about our talents in the region.
